About Us


Pure-Health was founded by Dr. Laina Shulman and Dr. Jamie Neely over 25 years ago. 

Both doctors grew up with health issues they thought they were going to live with forever. Dr. Shulman had pounding headaches, scoliosis and random autoimmune symptoms, while Dr. Neelys asthma, allergies and ongoing sicknesses had him sitting on the sidelines rather than playing the sports he loved. (Click on their pictures to read their stories).

They were frustrated with never-ending doctor appointments that ended with new prescriptions. Someone suggested a chiropractor, and they were ready to try anything.

 It was life changing. They were so amazed with the improvements in their health that they switched career paths and became chiropractors! They had to share this with others who were feeling frustrated and even hopeless about their health issues. They found the best massage therapists and nutritionists to work with, opened a Shulman Weightloss on site, and Pure-Health was born.

 At Pure-Health we want our patients to feel better quickly…and stay that way so they forget they ever had an issue .

We help our patients get back to the gym, un-slouched, and waking up without pain as their first thought. “Normal” headaches vanish (because they weren’t normal), and stiffness disappears so that they don’t need to stretch so often. We want our patients to be as active as they want without worrying theyre going to hurt themselves.

We love the look on our patient’s faces when they tell us how feeling better has changed their days. (Especially when thought they were going to have to live with their issues forever.) Their mood is better, they are on the floor playing with their kids, golfing to their heart’s content and some even sign up for those pilates classes they always wanted to try. If someone tells you that you can’t get better, it often means that they don’t know how to help you.

We provide the same personalized, high level of care to everyone we see. Whether you “threw out your back”, have awful headaches, want to lose weight in a healthy manner or are wondering if all the pain you feel is just because of your age (it isn’t). 

If you have a health issue you’re wondering about or simply want to take your health to the next level please contact us today to schedule an appointment.  We want to help. (You can also book an appointment online.)

What do the doctors do to stay healthy?

The doctors both get adjusted regularly and choose whole foods while avoiding medications (except in emergencies). Dr. Neely stays active doing Brazillian Jujitsu and hot yoga. Dr. Shulman is an advanced pilates practitioner, and enjoys movant and hot yoga. Both doctors love the outdoors and hiking.

Have you heard about something new in natural heathcare? Cold baths, Buteyko breathing, ketogenic diets, intermittent fasting, Holotropic Breathwork, Wim Hof etc…we guarantee they’ve tried it or know a lot about it.  Natural health is their passion, you’ll notice that when you meet them.

“In my youth I was an athlete, demanding a lot from my body. I developed chronic injuries which caused me to become sedentary, overweight and out of shape. 

Years later I was referred to Pure-Health.  I owe Dr. Shulman a debt of gratitude. She has been instrumental in my karate success. Not only has she supported me through my physical improvements but has been an emotional support which encouraged me to just keep reaching for the stars.”
